VINNALS, The Vinnals 1453 VCH VIII162, 1800 PR(L) 1, The Vennors 1651 PR(L) 6. TA has Vinnals as the name of a building, and fields called Upper and Lower Vinnals , Shakers Vinnals , Tomkiss Vinnals and Vinnals Patch . These fields are spread out over the N.W. of the parish, not all adjoining. There was an open field called Vinnals here. There is an obvious similarity to the He name High Vinnalls, which is that of a wooded massif S.W. of Ludlow. No etymology can be suggested, and the name has not been noted in other counties.
